T-Ball – It’s a Blast!!!
We at GKSA are looking forward to this summer’s T-Ball season. We have continued to see this division grow. As a result I will be increasing this division to 10 teams this season, also, hoping to reduce the amount of players on each team. As always I am looking for coaches and co-coaches. I do have some experienced coaches that I am welcoming back this season as their children are not moving up a division and their experience on the field will be a valuable asset to our rookie coaches. If you feel you cannot commit to being at every game either for work or other reasons maybe co-coaching is the answer! At this level, parents are generally at the diamond anyways and it doesn’t just have to be parents who coach, Grandparents are welcome too! Please feel free to contact me.

Q. My son/daughter can’t wait to start playing T-Ball for the first time. So what do I do?
Q. Is it really just $50 for an entire season of T-Ball?
A. Yep. This gets you a ball cap, shirt, basic picture package, trophies at the end of the year, a ball and a whole season of T-Ball. Good deal, eh?
Q. My child is only 4, but I think that they’re ready to start T-ball. Is this allowed?
A. We recognize that some 4 year olds are more “mature” than others. You, as their parent, are the best judge of your child. We would however you to consider that they really need to have an appropriate attention span to focus on the game so that they aren’t at risk of injury (i.e. getting hit by a ball). Also, they MUST be a minimum of 4 years of age when they register (i.e. they can’t be turning 4 in May or June).
Q. What diamonds are used for T-Ball?
A. The diamonds used for T-Ball are Bayridge, Hudson and LaSalle (off of McEwen Dr.).
Q. What time(s) do the game begin and how long are they?
A. T-Ball games begin at 6:30 on Mondays (plan on being there for about 6:15 although it depends on the coach) and they last for an hour.
Q. When does the season get going?
A. We are hoping early May 2017, but it’s not up to us. Hope for wind and sun to dry the fields!
